  • Description


    We are a small Family, one daugther 11 years old, living 55 km outside Tromsø in northern Norway. We have alpacas for fiber production. We have Dexter cows, some calves and Mangalitsa pigs for meat production. We also have two cats and one dog (Belgian shepard) that live in the house with us. We also have some free-range chickens and two rabbits.

    We are looking for some help at the farm. It will be mostly feeding animals and cleaning stables/paddocks and other necessary work to be done at the farm.

    We have wonderfull nature just around the corner.

    Our location is also good for exploring the Northern Norways largest city, Tromsø, only 50 min away by car.

    Both Anita and Ivan is working outside the farm, Anita 2 days a week and Ivan 5 days a week.
